Video of US Troops massacre in Iraq

By Dark Politricks

The following video is from wikileaks.org and shows the US military in action in Iraq engaging in the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad. The dead included two Reuters reporters and the injured included two young girls who arrived in the ambulance that was trying to recover the only survivor from the initial attack.

The video has been at the center of a freedom of information request which was vigorously fought against by the US military. It is their decision to publish this video that WikiLeaks believe is behind the recent attempt to shut them down.

The video is below and I watched it this morning. It honestly made me sick.  The part where the US helicopter pilots were desperately trying to get permission so that they could attack the ambulance that arrived is especially sickening.

No wonder the US tried to prevent this from being released.
